University is an important building block which makes a significant scientific contribution to the desire for learning of an individual adult. Providing an environment where interactive learning, personal differences and awareness become a resourceful richness as much as academic innovation, up to date qualifications and scientific growth are important reasons why universities exist. Individuals from different disciplines who will be entering business life in a few years are spending the most productive period of their life (for having a solid professional and humanistic background) at the university.
We, as MİKAM, are the primary solution partner of the students and the alumni for career awareness, career preparation and career growth. As a center providing opportunities, MİKAM acts as an organization which learns from the needs, demands and contributions of the students. We see our students, academics, alumni and professionals from different sectors as stakeholders of these areas of activity.
To bring together our students and alumni with the organizations which aim to provide job opportunities to talented students and to create a synergy between all stakeholders is the greatest wish of the MİKAM team.
What's in Alumni Communication and Career Research Center (MİKAM) for you?
While shaping your career journey, you can meet with us one-on-one at the undergraduate, graduate, doctoral stage or graduate regardless of the stage you are at. Even just to chat.
Did you know that you can receive counselling from us as you plan your career?
Our priority is to provide Career Counselling to all our students and graduates. You can meet with us at all stages of career planning and personal development, when you have a question on your mind that you cannot determine about your career, when you want to be clear about the choice of graduate study field selection, when you aim to get information about job-internship search resources and methods, and maybe when you only want to exchange ideas.
You can request an appointment par via e-mail: [email protected] for these meetings. Start your career today!!!
Knowing yourself and your interests is the first step in making a career decision. The decision belongs to the person herself/ himself. It consists of goals, experience, skills, values and interests. Career counselling increases your awareness of career options, allowing you to be aware of options that you have never thought of before.
Job and Internship Opportunities
We regularly hold meetings with institutions and organizations in order to guide our students and graduates in their professional career choices, to mediate for them in finding internships and job opportunities, to make them aware of the dynamics of the business life they will participate in, to ensure that they gain the knowledge and skills they will need while drawing their career paths, and to support them in finding jobs that are suitable for their personal qualifications and goals. Thereafter we announce the job and internship opportunities on the web page for our students and graduates to benefit.
Doing internships, working as part-time to gain work experience is one of the steps that will help in gaining knowledge, skills and experience. It is one of the options that will show you the right way in determining which field and which job you want to do.
Today, companies consider it as an advantage for students and recent graduates to have experience such as internship / part-time work. Doing an internship is more than learning at workplace.
You can also see job and internship opportunities posted on our website mikam maltepe.edu.tr and you can apply to the postings that are published and suitable for your area of interest. The application link of the relevant company is shared for each announcement and candidates can make their applications individually through the company in this way.
Reviewing Resume, Cover Letter, Letter of Intent
A resume is one of the most important tools to make a positive first impression when applying for a job, to show off your skills and yourself as a Professional.
Since the purpose of preparing a resume (CV) is to receive an invitation to a job / internship interview, it is the first and most important step in the process of finding a job / internship.
If you need support during the CV preparation process, if you want to get feedback about the cover letter you prepared for the internship or job application process, if you want to consult about writing a letter of intent for your graduate study applications, you can make an appointment at [email protected].
You can make an appointment with us to be prepared for the interviews during the job search process, to review possible questions to be asked during the interviews, to get information about the company you will visit before going to the interview, to share information and experiences about how your attitude and behaviour should be during the interview. Now you know our address! [email protected]
Development Activities (Seminar, conference, workshop etc.)
We can define Personal Development as the process of becoming the best by reaching one's own potential. Personal development is also a process that helps people prepare a more successful and peaceful life by improving their quality of life.
We attach great importance to the development of our students and graduates. We unite our students and graduates together. We know that you are a member of the same family, that they have stories to tell you, and experiences to share.
